My Setup

Build Description

Decent little build although it's obviously GPU bottlenecked (Sure I'm not alone) Plays most older titles or well optimized games at really good FPS on high or highest settings at 1080p but newer more demanding games are anywhere from 30 to 60 FPS depending on the Title. Still makes for a good little workstation, multimedia, general purpose machine and more than quick enough for basic task.
